Stop making business sense! Your triggering my irrational hatred more!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

Starscream looks nice.
Bulkhead just isn't as good as the FE version.

Meh, I only need Bulkhead to keep in vehicle mode so his less than stellar accuracy doesn't really bother me. Starscream does look nice but I prefer the FE overall, still gonna get him though.

On the positive side, at least this time the tumor part of the gun is sculpted like a missile pod on both figures, so it's a functional tumor.

Those weapons are ugly, especially Bulkhead's in vehicle mode. Starscream looks pretty cool overall, but I don't much like those translucent arms.

I think I'll pass on these. I don't have any particular fondness for Bulkhead and this figure isn't doing anything for me. And those dang translucent arms on top of that weird weapon are really killing that Starscream.

Considering that PRID Optimus and Megatron have translucent parts, that is altogether unsurprising. I'll just paint over em.

Admittedly, I think this Bulkhead does look much better than the initial pictures we saw, but yes, still much inferior to my FE version. That said though, if I hadn't managed to get the FE version I think I could be happy with this one, stupid gimmick weapon aside.

Starscream is nice too, but I'll stick with my FE version. I really don't need two Starscreams despite the fact that the FE is in scale with the other Cons and PRiD Screamer is more in scale with he Bots.

I'll get the figures, but I'll leave the weapons off of them. The weapons are just overly large, and don't add a thing to the vehicle or robot modes.

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

For the love of primus, I HATE the powerizer gimmick so fracking much. It looks terrible, it doesn't function, the weapons are useless (not even having the decency of Voyager mechtechs locking open), and looks pathetic when attached to almost any figure.

That aside, the Screamer looks pretty darn good (aside for the cancerous transparent arms brought on by the above), and Bulky while inferior to FE in every way (as usual) doesn't seem terrible, though I wish his shoulders were wider set.
